Hello Baking Community,


I went to a Lithuanian Funeral and one of the desserts was a diamond shaped shortbread cookie with an almond slice on top. They were baked in a 13 X 9 pan then cut into diamond shapes and served from the pan. They were so amazingly delicious!! If anyone knows of this dessert/cookie recipe PLEASE share. Thanks Nana

If possible, try tracking down the person who made them. It sounds close to the Dutch Jan Hagel cookie. (I found this on Google and haven't tried it; there are many similar recipes online.)

Hi Mimifix,

Thanks for sharing this recipe. I will try it for the holiday so if it is the one I'm looking for, I'll have lots of company to help me eat them! I'm afraid if I make them when I'm alone, well I might eat the whole pan, they are just that good!!! Thanks again and Happy Holidays! Nana

This recipe was what I was looking for, thank you sooo much for sharing! I made them for a Christmas party and they were a big hit!!! They have a delicate flavor of almonds but not too sweet, just right.


Happy Holidays,

Full blooded Lithuanian here, and never heard of these. So, as posted, glad to hear they are Dutch. Hate to think I missed something so yummy! All these years...
